Sections, please![edit]

This article is a big ugly list of stories and movies, and it seriously needs revision into sections with actual content and history. I may be able to get to this soon, but if someone else is motivated, please write! —ZorkFox 03:45, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Correction[edit]

Moving Mars was incorrectly listed as being published in 1973. I corrected the date to 1993 and moved it to the appropriate place chronologically. —jonnygoldstein 16:04, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Flash gordoncomic.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Flash gordoncomic.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

transformers[edit]

can we add something related to Transformers the 2007 movie?? watched that scene?

santa on mars[edit]

santa claus conquers the martians- one of the worst films ever. Despite the fact that I am laughing uncotrollably, isnt "one of the worst films ever" uncyclopaedic?? Of course I cant do a movie review because havent seen it. P.S. tell NASA the santa can transport their new mars probe :-) T.Neo 16:09, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Stranger in a Strange Land[edit]

Perhaps the most read book of Martians after War of the Worlds, missing... please add it, thanks. ---Ransom (--71.4.51.150 (talk) 22:34, 17 January 2008 (UTC))


Aria[edit]

This page needs a reference to the paper manga and animes series / OAV "Aria" (Aria the animation, Aria the Natural, Aria the Origination, Arietta). Takes place in a future where Mars has been terraformed and mainly flooded , and focuses on slices of life of a young gondola rower in a rebuild venice. --212.27.60.48 (talk) 19:24, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

WikiProject Comics B-Class Assesment required[edit]

Image copyright problem with Image:Marvinthemartain.jpg[edit]

The image Image:Marvinthemartain.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --01:59, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

But but but ya' gotta' have Marvin!
I've tried to fix the non-free media rationale, and have re-added the image. Hopefully this meets with the wikigods approval. —Aladdin Sane (talk) 17:46, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Possibly ambiguous, may need cleanup: The god or the planet?[edit]

A new bullet was just added to the Computer and video games section. While I don't disagree with the addition, I wasn't clear reading the text whether the god or the planet was referred to.

Then it dawned on me that the article really never seems to specifically state the subject (planet or god) (unless I missed it), particularly in the title, and it could be misconstrued. You kinda' have to skim the whole article to realize it's about the planet not the god.

Then again, why not the god as well? I suggest that at least we either make the subject clear in the lead paragraph that the article is about the planet not the god, or add a section for 'Mars the god' in the article. The article may need to be re-named, since there could actually be lots of references to the god, not the planet, and the article is already a bit long for comfort as it is. —Aladdin Sane (talk) 17:58, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Inappropriate unreferenced template[edit]

The unreferenced template does not belong here. The books are references for themselves. If no one objects, I will remove it. --Fartherred (talk) 19:25, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Journey Into Space[edit]

Shouldn't the immensely popular BBC serial "Journey into Space" be added to the radio list?AT Kunene (talk) 18:10, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Mars in Movies[edit]

There are a number of movies about Mars, some quite famous, that could be added. e.g.

"Conquest of Space" "Rocketship XM" "IT! The Terror from Space"
